5 College Freshman

Diversity: I've found that Coe is very accepting of all people, which makes for a great school atmosphere.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I think one of the best parts about Coe is that there are so many different people who are unique that it's impossible not to find someone who you have something in common with. There are countless organizations and clubs that support just about anything you can think of.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Coe College has plenty of diversity - in all areas. From homosexual to bisexual, democratic to republican, Christian to Islamic or Atheist, and representing many different countries, Coe has an extremely diverse population. I, myself am half-Egyptian, bi-curious, democratic, non-denominational Christian from New Mexico - which speaks a lot to the diversity that just one person can hold, let alone an entire college full of people just as diverse as myself. And with all the diversity, there's plenty of different points of view to learn from.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Fairly Diverse – Though located in Iowa, we have many international students from a variety of countries every semester. There are a lot of white midwesterners, but we also have many students from a variety of states and backgrounds.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not Extremely Diverse – Campus isn't quite as diverse as I know Coe wants to be. They are making a concentrated effort to increase diversity and I give them credit for that.

Students at Coe come from different walks of life. There is a good mixture of geographical and economic diversity. Coe has students from many European and Asian countries and a few from the African region, as well. Thus, this culture variety brings religious diversity to the College, too; however, religious differences are rarely acknowledged, nor can students find many religious organizations on campus.

Despite some diversity on campus, Coe students are mostly from Iowa or other states in the Midwest, which causes some students to complain about the lack of variety within the campus community. On the contrary, some students on campus are unwilling to share space with people from different backgrounds. Overall, though, most students are fairly tolerant towards differences in thought, attitude, and ethnicity.
